Treelodge@Punggol is HDB’s first eco-precinct, with features that harness the elements of nature to promote sustainable green living. This precinct is a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award-winning project, and is well-known for its green building technologies and design innovations which provide a liveable green lifestyle for its residents. Some of these design innovations are:
• Podium Carpark
The design of the podium carpark allows the residential blocks to be spaced further apart for better cross-ventilation within the precinct. The ceiling of the carpark is much higher than other multi-storey carparks, thus enhancing the dissipation of heat and improving ventilation and lighting in the carpark.
The roof of the carpark, the Eco-Deck, is a landscaped activity centre with the Green Spine linking all precinct amenities. Enhanced greenery along the Green Spine not only reduces heat built-up in the precinct, but also minimises glare and provides better and greener visual relief for homeowners.
• Rainwater Harvesting System
This system collects and stores rainwater, which is recycled for the washing of common corridor and watering of plants.

My Waterway@Punggol was designed and built by HDB , and it is Singapore’s first man-made waterway. The waterway is 4.2km long, and meanders through the entire Punggol Eco-Town. The design of the waterway and the landscape promenade embraces the area’s rich coastal heritage, providing more opportunities for water-based recreational activities and sports right next to the heartlands. From fresh water mangroves that clean the water, to themed street outdoor furniture made from recycled materials, My Waterway@Punggol is an achievement in urban sustainability.
The Kelong Bridge captures the idyllic mood of old Punggol's fishing villages. The bridge's stilts-and-posts wooden design element serves to remind the roots and heritage of Punggol village of the past, and is aptly located in the heritage zone of the Punggol Waterway Park.

An old bus stop and a 160m stretch of the old Punggol Road was preserved for residents to relive a piece of history while enjoying the waterway. The old bus stop acts as a sheltered rest stop and brings to mind old memories of Punggol. Together with the Kelong Bridge, they are part of the 1.3 km heritage trail that will link Punggol Waterway Park to the Punggol Point waterfront.
